Demos delivered in this session

  • Publish a connector to the Power Platform – announcement July 19, anyone can submit a connector to the Microsoft Power Platform, need not be the API owner.  Hear about the mission, goals and benefits of the Independent Publisher Connector Program.  See a demo of the Airtable connector in Power Automate.   Learn about the certification process in GitHub, connectors being developed presently and about how to get plugged into program communications channels. 

  • How to update an Adaptive Card with a Teams Messaging Extension and MessagePreview – call on an action-based messaging extension created with the Teams Yeoman Generator to post a simple adaptive card to a Microsoft Team's news channel.  Post 'as a bot' and with an action to update the same adaptive card again and again, as opposed to a 1-time action.  Use workflow to cap number of permissible card updates, if necessary.

  • ACS – Teams InterOp with Call Routing – see the seamless interoperation between Azure Communication Services (ACS) and Microsoft Teams that enables a business user with a Teams license to have a video call/chat with a citizen consumer who doesn’t have a Teams license.   The B2C solution uses a Bot for agent routing, adaptive cards for communications, and ACS for a web-based video call from desktop or mobile.    Sample in PnP samples repository.   

Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.
